We have contradictory advice about contributions in the Wiki. In:


It says:

"Cross-references, links, references, and (usually) examples are 
neither signed nor acknowledged in [the extensions field]"

Whereas in:


It says:

"[Signing contributions]  applies to comments, formulas, examples,

My own opinion is that cross-references, references, and links should 
not normally be signed. Examples I actually think should be signed 
unless they are very simple.
